Repression or opportunity?

During this time when so many of us are secluding ourselves away from each other in an effort to retain our health against this viral onslaught. It’s easy to get depressed and feel that our self-inflicted withdrawal from society has in some way injured us, we feel we are victims of this viral pandemic. To those who feel this I want to say… take heart. This is only a moment in time compared to our entire life, however, it may be one of the most important times we live through. I encourage you to take photos of your everyday activities and post them. Take time outside of drowning in social media to cherish this family time; make scrapbooks, do puzzles, and relish in all the things we once did before the techno-boom. Write, paint, and be creative. Read all those books you purchased on a whim. Play that instrument again that you put away for 20 years. Use this time wisely. Look at this as an opportunity that will never come your way again. Use it wisely.
